The Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES) has opened the application period for the 2022 Newman Grant program. Newman Grants are designed to financially assist numismatic authors and organizations pursuing original research in American numismatics. This program was launched in 2019 and supports research projects related to colonial numismatics, U.S. federal coinage, counterfeit detection, and other areas.

Authors, researchers, and numismatic organizations are encouraged to apply for amounts between $1,000 and $5,000. Awards may be applied toward related research costs including but not limited to photography, reproduction of research material and graphic art services, database access fees, and travel. Electronic publications will be preferred as EPNNES wishes to direct funds toward expenses specifically related to numismatic research, rather than the print publication of research. Newman Grant awardees agree to non-exclusive publication of their research on the Newman Numismatic Portal. EPNNES intends to make approximately half a dozen grants in 2022.

The application deadline is 15th April 2022, with the grant awards to be announced on 25th May 2022, coincident with the late Eric P. Newman’s birthday.


The Newman Grant program is administered for EPNNES by the Newman Numismatic Portal. Applications may be found on the Newman Numismatic Portal.

Applications should be submitted via email.
